of the things we heard from secretary clinton this week was her defensive viewing of ambassador susan rice who continues to come under fire from some republicans for comments she made on the attack in the u.s. consulate in benghazi. take a listen. >> susan rice has done a great job as our u.n. ambassador. she has been a stalwart colleague in a lot of the tough decisions that we've had to make. and certainly with respect to defending our national interests and national security at the united nations. >> so clinton is also going to testify on benghazi next week. what are the politics of all of this for secretary clinton? and are there risks for her here? >> i don't think there are necessarily risks for her here as long as she stays out of the whole fray of susan rice and congressional republicans. there's an awful lot going on on that score, but i tnk hillary clinton may be able to keep herself above all that. by the way, we keep expecting the white house for this rice situation to be resolved. we fully expect president clinton to make -- excuse me, president obama to make his announcement about
would love to talk to you about. let's start with susan rice. we saw and spent some time with her at the party. everywhere i go, people ask me: is the president going to nominate susan rice for secretary of state after what she's been through? >> i am not sure he wants that fight but he's got to -- if he does he want, he has to find something else for her to do, some other big job for her to do if he doesn't go that route. >> bill: i agree. first of all, i hope he -- percentage, i hope he does because i love to see him take on the fight and humil "john mccain and lindsey graham but at the same time, i have to say it's sort of not his style." right? >> right. no drama >> bill: a lot of people are thinking, why would he want to spend his political capitol, all he has got, a lot of what he's got the right now in the early days of his second term, second term on this. it seems he might look for something else for her to to do. >> what could that be? it would have to be a cabinet position. >> bill: national security adviseo. >> if janet non-gaapapalitan
. >>> the foreign relations committee overseas the state department, that, of course, means susan rice is nominated to be secretary of state. the arizona senator would be in a position to grill her during her nomination hearing. mccain has been one of the biggest critics of susan rice suggesting she misled the nation about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >>> accused new york subway pusher, davis, is expected back in court today. he told "the new york post" he was high on pot and heard voices before allegely pushing 58-year-old on to the tracks. naeem davis is charged with second degree murder. >>> he also wants to lose the gps device and be allowed to travel outside seminole county, florida. he's expected to argue eight motions in all. >>> bob costas is not backing down from his controversial on-air comments about gun control. he admits his remarks may have been imperfect in the aftermath of a murder/suicide involving kansas city chiefs player jevon belcher. >> if this has sparked a conversation and in some small way influenced people's behavior, so much the better. front page of the
clinton finally came out and gave a strong endorsement to susan rice. some people, including maureen dowd, would suggest maybe that took a little longer than was necessary. >> it was striking. it was striking how long it took. and it didn't go unnoticed, obviously. >> she's traveling. >> you see john kerry being embraced by republicans. i think a lot of democrats would also like him to be the next secretary of state. where are we in that fight? we have so many issues that are on the front pages now. i think the president needs to get his person in as soon as possible. >> well, my sense is that secretary clinton weighing in perhaps suggests that the nomination is coming soon. i've talked to people on all sides of this. there's no question that benghazi continues to be litigated. even on the democratic side, there is some division on this. i've talked to democratic senators who have questioned whether she has the standing, the stature, to be secretary of state. so obviously there's some division about how people view susan rice. but here's the bottom line. she's very close to the president
: the likely short list to succeed secretary of state hillary clinton is politically charged. susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, is thought to be a leading contender. some republicans have been highly critical of rice following the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they got a problem with me. >> senator mccain. >> thank you very much, mr. secreta secretary. >> reporter:. i. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent appointment and would be easily confirmed by his colleagues. >> reporter: it is a list that includes michelle flournoy who held the number three job at the pentagon. ashton carter is on the list, and former nebraska senator chuck hagel, a republican, could represent a reach across the aisle. >> we're in a much stronger position today as a country than we were in '07. >> reporter: treasury secretary tim geithner said he will stay at his post until at least inauguration. president obama's chief of staff jack lew is often named as a possible replacement. a poll
c-max hybrid. >> steve: why don't republicans, some republicans want susan rice to be the next secretary of state replacing hillary clinton? in the past, top democrats claimed she's only being criticized because she's black. >> you know, these are code words. that's kinds of terms, those of us, especially those of white house have born and raised in the south, we are hear these words and phrases all of our lives and we get insulted by them. susan rice is as competent as anybody you will find. she was wrong for doing it. but don't call her incompetent. that is something totally different. >> steve: is that really the case? here to comment is senior fellow at the hoover institution, victor davis hanson. pleasure to have you. thank you very much. >> thank you for having me. >> steve: what do you think of that? >> sharon rice wasn't on tv shortly after the benghazi attack, and not just declared u about emphatically declared that it was a result of spontaneous demonstration. i think all america as they saw her say that, couldn't believe it. people don't bring povertyars to demonstra
have been so focused on susan rice and the benghazi incident, no one has put any focus on hillary clinton. is that going to help her? >> hillary clinton has been very adept at making sure she had no fingerprints on the benghazi fiasco or any part of it. no, it won't help. what josh is getting at there is we have a very polarized political system where we're no longer the country where people could rally to "i like ike" because he was a figure outside politics. what you're seeing in that poll is, one, a name recognition effect, and, two, a lot of republicans who remember the 2008 hillary clinton versus barack obama fight. barack obama won, so they liked hillary clinton. if hillary clinton had won in 2008, you would hear lots of republicans saying, none of this would be happening if that idealistic barack obama had won instead. if hillary clinton is the nominee in 2016, this will be an election decided by three or four percentage points. it will not be a 57/30 election. >> it always tightens. i'm curious about the other side since you're talking about 2008. marco rubio and paul ryan
the senate foreign relations committee next year which could put him in a spot to grill susan rice if obama chooses her as his next secretary of state. as we've seen since the benghazi attack, mccain is one of rice's harshest critics. the two met late last month along with other senators to discuss rice's television appearances during the aftermath of those september 11th attacks in libya. rice hoped to put mccain's fears at ease but he came out of the meetings saying he only had more questions than when he went in. mccain spokesman says he will seek a spot on the international affairs panel which oversees the state department. republicans have said they would rather see john kerry as circumstance -- secretary of state over susan rice. hillary clinton is still polling very well after her stint with the state department and democrats are practically begging to see her in 2016. according to the latest abc news, "washington post" poll, 57% of people say they would support her run. although abc is reporting today she said she'l
the attack with susan rice and her comments. i want to get it back to the president and the secretary of state and they bear responsibility for what happened on 9/11. jon: well, secretary clinton has already said that the buck stops with her as far as diplomatic security. eric nordstrom, who was in charge of security on the ground, has already testified before congress saying that he had asked for more security and it was rejected at the state department headquarters. is that secretary clinton's responsibility? >> well it seems that the president should have known about the level of recruitment going on for al qaeda-linked terrorists right in that area. it was a hotbed. it was really a center of recruiting right there in eastern libya. so i want to know why the president continued to speak of having al qaeda on the run when in fact that is not the case at all. we saw them getting stronger, more forceful and the story that he was telling the american people i think now is going to come out was a story to deceive the american people but certainly to mislead them. jon: you started off th
showy forums. you've seen the president do this when she was questioned about opposition to susan rice. she will do it in this format we're all very aware of the theatricality of. we've kind of already heard republicans drop off the benghazi issue. they started it by proposing so many hypotheticals that have now been proven wrong. i think she can close many pages of the book with a good performance this week. >> you just used a word. theatricality. is that a slate word? did you just make that up? >> i think of it whenever i see people, member of congress, preening and trying to get witnesses to embarrass themselves on tv. i think of that word. >> matt welch, what's the headline? >> "benghazi syonara." we have strange coptic christians now in jail. we have david petraeus' sex life and strange society women in florida. nothing good happens here. run screaming from this story. hillary clinton wants to leave government and get safely away from this and from also, you know, foreign policy blow-ups that might hit the obama administration in the second term so she can concentrate on winning e
susan rice talked to reporters outside the security council in new york. she's responding to north korea's launch of a long-range rocket that happened earlier today. here's what she said. >> the international community and our colleagues in the council have condemned this launch clearly and swiftly as a clear violation of u.n. security council resolutions 1718 and 1874. this launch comes only eight months after this council unanimously adopted a presidential statement making clear that any launch using ballistic missile technology, no matter how north korea chooses to characterize it, is, in fact, a serious violation of two security council resolutions. >> we're also following that shooting that occurred yesterday in an oregon mall. this is the latest information that we have from ofishes. they have identified the shooter as jacob tyler roberts, born march 16th, 1990. that makes him approximately 22 years old. according to officials, police say he shot himself as police converged on him in the mall. first, he actually came to the mall and went to the macy's and the food court, shot the v
